Lahore, Pakistan: May 31, 2009. (Margaret Piyara reports for PCP) At the call of the church leaders of different denominations of Pakistan 30th May 2009, Milap Children Wing Organized a program for lasting Peace in the country

especially in the North. Swat is the Switzerland of Asia. The Pak. Army thinks that so far there are about 2 million people who have left there homes and they are in Army camps. There are still people who are stuck in some places and can’t come. These people were living a peaceful life and never thought that they will leave there home. They are not only good looking but very hospitable. He said that the earth quake in Oct. 2005 was a disaster from God and we bore it but this is man made. He said that let us pray for the culprit not to burn our own home. We ask all the Nation to be united because United we stand but divided we fall. When we see the photos in the news papers or the magazines we are reminded of the people of Egypt. When they were there as slaves. The Bible reading was done by Mehwish Gill. Today we are one with our own people, as Pakistanis with the whole Nation. We keep the fast and the day of prayer. Opening prayer was said by Sideeque Bhutta. He prayed for peace in the country. The Pak-Land was not to be made for that, it was made to build and not to destroy. He said that the Lord will give wisdom to all of us and especially to the Talban. So many lives are just killed each and everyday. The Lord is the owner of our lives and not any human being. He said that only He has the right to take our lives and none else could do that. They sung Psalms and the young Muhammad. Jhangeer sung the Nahat the holy songs. The Children prayed presented the samples of life . The try to see the beauty of Pakistan and made an offering to God. Daniel James had a green leave of a tree and he said this leave show us that the tree has a leave. But when we just cut the branch and throw it on the floor and step it then the leave just dies, no life at all. It is same with our situation in the country. We as human beings are treated in the same way. Komal chohan presented a stone and prayed. Oh God I pray for these Talban that as there hearts are like stones and do not feel when they kill human beings. We all Milap Children unite ourselves with the country that may the Good Lord will soften there hearts and they will stop all this. Please Jesus hear our prayer. Dawood Khokhor presented a burning candle and prayed, as I present this candle on this peace day. The Lord will really bring peace in the country. As the candle burns it becomes soft and then it finishes. It gives light and let this lit candle will bring light and life in each and everyone’s home and family. Peace candle was lit by the oldest lady in our program Mrs. Khursheed Sadiq. Then we all lit the peace candle and while we lit the candle we sung the prayer of Saint Francis, Make me a Channel of your Peace. Then we were quiet for a minute or 2 and prayed quietly for the repose of souls of all the people who have just died during these blasts and the clear operation. Pray also for their families and all there dear ones whom they have left behind, sad and crying. For all those who are in difficulty of hunger and thirst. For those who are just under the sky and no shelter and for other. Then we sung the Our Father by holding hands. Margaret Piara, Milap Orgainzation director said that Swat is the Switzerland of Asia. The Pak. Army thinks that so far there are about 2 million people who have left there homes and they are in Army camps. There are still people who are stuck in some places and can’t come. These people were living a peaceful life and never thought that they will leave there home. They are not only good looking but very hospitable. She said that the earth quake in Oct. 2005 was a disaster from God and we bore it but this is man made. She said that let us pray for the culprit not to burn our own home. We ask all the Nation to be united because United we stand but divided we fall. Pastor Joseph Khokhar said the closing prayer and the last Blessing. After that the Milap Children wing had arranged the eatables for the breaking of the fast for the present congregation.
